Best Brains Keller Announces Scholarships For Summer Day Camp
Beginning today, Best Brains is pleased to announce it is now taking applications to select students who will receive full paid one-week scholarships to its 2019 STEAM+ Summer Day Camp located in Keller, TX. This is the first year that Best Brains will offer full paid scholarships. The deadline for applications is Friday, July 5, 2019.
This scholarship is designed to be used by children in families who are experiencing financial hardship yet have a desire to participate in summer camp. These are students who would benefit from the enrichment that summer camp has to offer. This scholarship is for children ages 6-12 whose parent(s) is/are:
- temporarily out of work
- on limited income
- overwhelmed by medical or other bills
- experiencing other financial hardships
To be considered for this scholarship, parents must complete an application. Best Brains will award scholarships based on the following criteria:
Financial need (Proof of income and financial hardship required)
Interest and involvement in summer camp activities
Potential for academic and social development through the summer camp experience
Recent research suggests that there are major gaps in students who attend summer camp; just 7% of students from poor families attend. “We realize that there are many families who cannot afford summer camp for their children. These kids are left home during long summer days looking for things to do while parents work. Some of their chosen activities lead to unfortunate consequences. As seen by a recent news story in which children found a gun and decided to play with it.” We want to change this narrative.
Our hands-on STEAM+ summer camp features science, technology, engineering, art, math + English. Kids, ages 6-12, will learn in a fun, engaging and interactive learning environment. This program will teach our young innovators to question, explore, and conquer obstacles. Our summer activities will engage students in lessons that meet their social and academic needs. Classes include Coding, Art, Public Speaking, Math, English, and Science.
